Where to Find the Best Breakfast in Perth

Inconspicuously nestled on many a suburban corner, city laneway or waterside locale, there is an abundance of tasty cafes to delve into for the best breakfast in Perth.

Little Bay Perth
Little Bay Perth

While on a quest to reveal the best breakfast in Perth, from charming Subiaco to bustling Fremantle, we also discovered that Perth is potentially the café capital of the nation. We would like to declare we were too busy sampling the most important meal of the day to neither confirm nor deny this outlandish claim.

Ranging from eggy classics to baked goodies, we’ve even managed to be inspired by our Asian neighbours for the best breakfast in Perth.  

Bib & Tucker Perth
Bib & Tucker

Bib & Tucker

An oceanside table with Immaculate views across Leighton beach, a relaxed vibe and excellent coffee awaits at this North Fremantle favourite. Bib & Tucker offer all day dining, but there are some all-time classics on the breakfast menu that you definitely need to try. We can’t go past the zucchini and haloumi fritters or the Turkish eggs. SO good. 

18 Leighton Beach Boulevard, North Fremantle 

Little Bay Perth
Little Bay

Little Bay

With its bright and airy ambiance, gorgeous white aesthetic and spectacular views of Waterman’s Bay, it’s hard to beat Little Bay for a leisurely and indulgent weekend breakfast. Sit outside to enjoy the salty ocean air with your coffee, or grab a table inside and watch the world go by through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The menu is full of mouthwatering options, from buttermilk fried chicken waffles, to lighter options like avocado smash.

33 W Coast Drive, Watermans Bay

Good Things Cafe Perth
Good Things

Good Things 

This Fremantle cafe is all Good Things! This light-filled, friendly spot is one of our all time favourites, for the fluffiest, diner-style and seasonal buttermilk hotcakes, the creamiest coffee and some of the best eggs in town. The poached eggs with hollandaise, pickled zucchini and thick cut sourdough are undeniable, as are the Korean sambal-scramble. Add a side of fried chicken to anything and you really can't go wrong here. 

16 Bannister Street, Fremantle

Nogi Lane Cafe in Perth
Nogi Lane

Nogi Lane

Nogi Lane is a modern neighbourhood cafe in north-reaching Dianella, where you'll find a talented chef playing on brunch classics by way of his Burmese and Indian heritage. Think eggs benedict with a cardamom-spiked hollandaise; spiced pulled lamb blue corn tacos with red cabbage, jalapeño chimichurri, herbs, sumac, honey and yoghurt; spicy rendang scrambled eggs; and a baked raspberry pancake topped with honeycomb, meringue, crumble, condensed milk custard and ice cream. Coffee is by Five Senses. For a breakfast in Perth with a difference, you don't want to miss out on a visit to Nogi Lane. 

308 The Strand, Dianella 

Servo Leederville Perth Cafe
Servo Leederville

Servo Leederville

Slinging out some of the best breakfast in Perth to a steady stream of hungry hordes on weekends only, Servo Leederville evokes an all-day aphrodesia. Their menu masters a balance in health, in hedonism, in fun and in flavour.

Settle into the bright and bustling venue, taking cues from its industrial setting, and order up something for everyone - from smoked shakshuka with cumin and tahini butter and a beef brekky burger with bacon, fried egg, cheese, ranch and chipotle, to chia seed porridge with a blueberry compote, and stracciatella on charred toast with avocado, broccolini, edamame, chilli oil and kale chips. Turbo-charge your brunch fix with the pork katsu, served with creamed corn, poached egg and bulldog sauce - you won't regret it. 

The Leederville Precinct, 9 Electric Lane, Leederville

Mary Street Bakery
Mary Street Bakery

Mary Street Bakery

Purveyor of fine salted caramel doughnuts, fried chicken buttermilk pancakes and some of the best soft eggs in town, cult-favourite Mary Street Bakery needs little in the way of introduction to Perth's most enlightened breakfast-goers. Now boasting multiple locations all over Perth, we recommend heading to the corner store charm of the café's OG Highgate digs. With its split level interiors, it's a light-filled and ambient spot for you to tuck in to some of the best breakfast in Perth... with a side of pressed juice, of course!

507 Beaufort Street, Highgate

Dank Pizza Perth
Dank Pizza

Dank Pizza 

Pull up a milk crate and start the day the Italian way... with pizza for breakfast! It might not seem like the most natural pairing, but Dank Pizza are doing something right with their Saturday morning pop-up outside of Twin Peaks' roastery in Morley. 

It's an all out pizza party with these perfect-for-one pies, made all the more tantalising with a side of expertly crafted coffee. Get your fill of flavours ranging from pepperoni and traditional margarita, to breakfast-like egg and prosciutto and mushroom, cheese and truffle. 

11/28 Rudloc Road, Morley

Soho Lane Cafe Perth
Soho Lane

Alexander Buildings, 13/649 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley

Toast Cafe Perth
Toast

Toast

Tucked away on East Perth’s watery Claisebrook Cove, Toast is known for its crepes and Indonesian options such as nasi goreng, a selection of eggs benedict and, as you’d expect, some toasty favourites such as the savoury French toast. As dolphins frolic nearby, the all-day menu has been serving the locals since 2009. Make a day of it and catch a ride into the city or Optus Stadium with the Little Ferry Co. docked metres away. Or, stroll to the nearby Matagarup Bridge where you can zip and climb your sins away. 

21/60 Royal Street, East Perth

Padburys Cafe Perth
Padbury’s

Padbury’s Café Restaurant

Situated in the iconic Padbury Stores and Residence building established in 1869, Padbury’s Café Restaurant has been a popular fixture in historic Guildford for decades. Their all-day menu is nothing short of inspiring with Bânh mi and magic mushrooms. However, they have become Insta-famous for their fluffy lemon meringue buttermilk pancakes stacked with homemade lemon curd, lemon candy, honeycomb and granola. Continue with the decadence next door with a browse at Panache Living for homewares and fashion. 

114 Terrace Road, Guildford 

Island Market Trigg Perth
Island Market Trigg

Island Market Trigg

Enjoy a side of surf with your breakfast on WA’s famed turquoise coastline in the seaside suburb of Trigg. Surprisingly, there aren’t many eateries with direct beach access in Perth, but the only thing the Island Market Trigg is guilty of is their naughty morning cocktails. A Cheeky Bellini is a sparkling start to the day with Five Senses coffee, waffles and sardines on toast with the water practically lapping at your feet. 

364 West Coast Drive, Trigg 

Viaje Coffee Perth
Viaje Coffee

Viaje Coffee

When you slip into Beaux Lane off Mt Lawley’s main café strip, you’ll need to pop out into the carpark to discover Viaje Coffee; if there’s any confusion, it’s the cute pink building. Their evolving breakfast menu includes waffles with avocado smash and miso mushroom scrambled eggs. Since opening in September 2021, they’ve already created a loyal following, and if you can’t secure a table, their takeaway house-made pastries and coffee should keep you going. 

8/609 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley 

Satchmo Cafe Perth
Satchmo Café

Satchmo Café

You can almost hear distinct New York accents in the distance when ordering off the Jewish menu at Satchmo Café. Matzo ball chicken soup, knish and bagels sit nicely beside New Orleans classics like Louisiana gumbo and the Buffalo fried chicken sandwich. This beatnik North Perth haven serves breakfast all day and is wildly entertaining on Sunday mornings with live blues and jazz, rightly so since Louis Armstrong inspired this charming café. 

Shop 1, 400 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth 

Roasting Warehouse Cafe Perth
Roasting Warehouse

Roasting Warehouse

This converted petrol station turned café raises the breakfast stakes in South Fremantle’s café-mecca. The re-imagined eggs benny Chan features soft-boiled eggs coated in panko and roti while the Asian-inspired pork omelette is a revelation. The all-day brunch menu accompanies their unique small-batch coffee blends and all-day cocktails - surely espresso martinis are acceptable before noon?

312 South Terrace, South Fremantle
